Job Description

If you are a Remote Senior UI Engineer with experience, please read on!

We are a leading web development and strategy agency that emphasizes great user experiences and simple content management.

Our secret to making first class websites is simple: create great user experiences for everyone from the website's audience, to the content managers and code contributors behind the scenes. We believe that content management -- the process of keeping your website fresh and up to date -- shouldn't require any more expertise than word processing. We strive to make content management more than "manageable" -- we strive to make it fun.

With that mission in mind, it's no surprise that we specialize in awesome WordPress implementations. We believe WordPress is the easiest to use content management system, with a low cost of entry and unbelievable potential in the hands of the right developers.

We have built some of the most popular WordPress plug-ins on the repository, speaks at conferences around the country, writes for leading web publications like Smashing Magazine, and organizes multiple WordPress Meetups. We have been the force behind some of the most popular WordPress-powered websites on the Internet.
